Born in the bosom of a Colombian family settled in the U.S., singer/songwriter Crystal Sierra attended Baltimore's High School for the Performing Arts after being seduced by pop music. She was convinced of her chance to become a professional, and soon obtained a scholarship to study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Crytal Sierra started her singing career while joining a female threesome called Hands-On, deciding to go on her own in 1999, signing up to Virgin Records, that same year. "Playa No More" became her first single, released in October of 2000, followed by Crystal Sierra's debut album, called Morena, an interesting mixture of urban sounds and Latin rhythms. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
